existing laws. they're not enforced. but did you see this gallup, a new record for people that oppose handgun bans. 74%. it's never been that high. 24% -- more people apparently would ban piers morgan from ever appearing on tv again than would ban handguns. that's much higher consensus on that. which i think -- which would be good for everybody, i think. >> look, there are a lot of cross currents here, joe. you're right. i mean i think there's very strong sentiment that something big has to change. >> background checks, you know what? you definitely got to -- you should do that. >> gun show loopholes >> there's some simple things. but actually questioning the second amendment, that's counterproductive. i'm telling you. for people that do that. it's counter productive. anyway -- >> very special thanks to eamon and to jared. happy holidays if we don't see you before the new year. but i think given this conversation we might be talking cliff even on monday. >> thanks. >> coming up, businesses bracing for the fiscal cliff. we'll ask chairman and ceo thomas fanning if the deal is possible
